SPDX and LF's Open Compliance Program

The SPDX Group is incredibly pleased to have the specification adopted as one of the key elements of the Linux Foundation’s Open Compliance Program. The Foundation has been supportive from the outset, but this is a huge step beyond. It was at LinuxCon in the fall of 2009 that I first met Kate Stewart chirping about for other birds of her feather, folks who shared the pain and were up for tackling the industry problem of exchanging package data. A number of us expressed interest, but it was Jim Zemlin and the Linux Foundation that gave the effort the home it needed as part of FOSSBazaar.
